Here is my entry for the wonderful Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge - now in it's 25th Week!!. I really liked the simple lines of this sketch and was feeling inspired by all the cold, snowy, frosty weather we've been having here in the UK. I decided to have a go and make an icy inspired Christmas card.
I began by using a stamping some text in Versamark ink onto a square of cream card and then embossed using silver embossing powder. I then stamped the beautiful frame on top of this using the same process and added some colour using a powder blue copic marker.
I created my ornament by first stamping in silver Encore ink and then adding the detail using heat and stick powder followed by dazzling diamonds glitter. I then added some tiny seed pearl beads for definition. I stamped the little snowflake stamp onto some cream and silver patterned paper using Versamark and then embossed in silver and cut out by hand. A silver dew-drop gem for the centre and some tiny blobs of stickles hopefully bring it to life!
I really do hope you like my card and am going to go visit all the other blogs and enjoy everyone elses creations now!!
Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the week ahead x
